    Opened...first numbers with my brand new TF100

    Opened pool today, thousands of worms! Kids were grossed out...LOL!! Very clean considering I have a mesh safety cover. Never had it open this clean while running Baqua-****! I think I am to bring to shock level now, right? Using pool calculator that has me adding 5 gallons of bleach to get to a shock level of 12.

    FC- 0.5
    CC- 0.0
    pH- 7.5
    TA- 90
    CH- 130
    CYA- 40
    Temp- COLD!!!

    Converted Baquacil to Chlorine - should have done it sooner!

    Hey there Chris,

    Congrats on opening to a clean pool! You know we want to see a pic

    Recheck your shock level for CYA of 40. I'm getting around 15 or 16.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    Hey guys, it IS good to be back again! Thanks Butterfly, I did forget to enter the CYA value for calculating the shock. I will be getting it to shock tonight so I'll adjust now. Sun is almost setting so we will see how much it drops overnight. Latest numbers:

    Added 5 gallons of bleach at 2 PM, reading 15 minutes later:
    FC- 13.0
    CC- 0.0
    TC- 13.0
    Temp- COLD!!!

    Reading at 8:15 PM, 6 hours after initial bleach
    FC- 8.0
    CC- 0.5
    TC- 8.5
    Temp- still COLD!!!

    Going to add 3 gallons of bleach to get to a shock level of 15. PIC sizes are too big, I'll edit them and post asap. See ya'll in the morning!

    Re: Opened...first numbers with my brand new TF100

    Ha, i WAS heading to bed but so much going on in my life I couldn't sleep.

    Checked numbers this morning at 8:30 AM:

    FC- 14.5
    CC- 0.0
    Temp- 58F

    Vacuumed up all the sediment that fell to the bottom. Looks ever BETTER this morning. I am a happy camper. I couldn't imagine an opening like this with Baquacil...

    Re: Opened...first numbers with my brand new TF100

    Well, I've never heard of FC going UP with an overnight test

    I'm assuming one or the other is a typo, but either way close enough that you shouldn't have to keep shocking!
